Porsche: The 911 will not be fully electric, a plug-in hybrid version likely
Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has denied widespread rumors about the realization of a potential all-electric 911, revealing some information about a plug-in hybrid version.

Many investments made by the German car manufacturer for staying at the top even in the new era of energy transition. The plans made by Porsche in fact foresee to allocate around 10 billion euros for new hybridization, electrification and digitization projects of its future models of the range.

The recent statements regarding a new hybrid version of the 911, released by Oliver Blume to Bloomberg are as follows:

Let's be clear, our icon, the 911, will have a combustion engine for a long time to come. The 911 is a car concept that is prepared for the combustion engine. It is not necessary to combine it with pure electric mobility. We believe in cars designed specifically for electric mobility.

According to the CEO himself, the construction of a battery-powered Porsche 911 does not seem to be in the plans, emphasizing, instead, that if the Porsche car manufacturer were to build a new 100% electric sports car, it would probably be designed and built as a new and unprecedented model.

I think there is also room for an electric sports car to be added to the sports car range in the future. There would be really great opportunities.

Despite this, Oliver Blume, with his statements bodes well. It would in fact be possible that the German company will soon bring a plug-in hybrid variant of the Porsche 911 to the market. Statements that would therefore confirm previous widespread rumors.

In the future for the 911, there are good ideas for a special type of hybrid, a very performance-oriented hybrid, where we use, for example, a 400-volt system for our electric motor. This is more or less our idea of ​​how to continue with the 911.

Most likely therefore the 911 could become hybrid but not fully electric. Let's not forget that by 2025, 50% of Porsche cars sold could be electrified. To release statements regarding technical solutions to be offered to future buyers, it was Blume himself who expressed Porsche's desire to cut emissions from its vehicles, with the desire to bring half of the Porsche in hybrid or electric versions by that date.

Rather long-term plans that also see other very important car manufacturers as protagonists. Just a few days ago, the statements by the CEO of the Maranello house made it known that Ferrari will not be fully electric, at least for the moment. Statements suggesting that Ferrari's model line-up will mostly be based on internal combustion engines.
